With that being said, we were in a very different place in our lives when we had Van. We didn't splurge on all of those cool baby gadgets, and the truth is I didn't even buy one of those cute match-E crib sets. We were extremely practical, maybe even a bit skimpy.
It has always been my dream to have a really cute nursery. Why? I really don't know, because who honestly goes in there besides a few random people. NE-who, still my dream. I have talked about it for years. Paul promised me that he would make it happen when we had another baby. Guess who made good on his word? My sweet Paul.
We searched high and low for the bedding that would match the best.
We special ordered a super cute valance for his window.
Paul and I made multiple trips to pick out the most comfortable rocker.
We discussed and rediscussed how we would arrange Vin's nursery.
Then there was the whole crib debate. We dragged the crib up from the basement one weekend, got it all set up, and then decided we hated the white. So, back to the store we went to pick out a different color for Vin's "manly" room. =)
After all of the decisions were made, my sweet friend started getting creative. We have started on the lil' things to hang on the walls, but honestly I lost motivation after I got this far. Maybe when I don't feel like I will have a baby...I will finish those up. =)
I sat in the rocking chair last night, and smelled all of those clean baby boy clothes...and honestly I am thrilled beyond words for our son to arrive.
